Connolly Genealogy & History

Connolly is an anglicized form of the pre-10th century Old Gaelic names O'Conghaile of Connacht and of Monaghan, or O'Conghalaigh of Munster. The prefix "O" indicates "descendant of", plus the personal name "Conghaile", from "con", meaning "hound", and "gal", meaning "valor". This results in "descendants of the Hound of Valor". Variant spellings include Connelly, Conley and Conlee. Conley family history locates them in the counties of Meath, Monaghan, and Munster. The first recorded spelling of the family name dates from 1591. Conleys in America date from 1640. Connolly genealogy includes William G. Connolly, co-author of The New York Times style guide, and Oscar-nominated screenwriter Myles Connolly.
